Off brand TVs
 
Anyone have an off brand TV (Sceptre, Haier, etc)?

What's your opinion on them?

I'm looking for another TV that would go in my other living room. I'm planning on mainly using it for playing my kid's shows and using it for my Insanity DVDs.....so I'm not really looking for a high end $600 TV. I'd like to keep it under $300 and larger than 32".

Any recommendations?

I'm not sure if you can consider it name brand. But, I've had my Vizio for over 4 years.

I love it.

I'd consider it name brand but if I can find a cheap one....I'll take it. I've got a Vizio 32" for our bedroom TV.

Typically you can find them on the cheap.

Especially if you have a Sam's Club card.

I bought mine when I worked there over four years ago, and financed it.

Not one complaint.

I have a Curtis, don't recommend it as your "primary" TV but would work for a bed room or office TV.

Looking to upgrade this year.

Kind of like Vizio, Westinghouse isn't a complete off-brand, but we got a pretty cheap one at Best Buy five years or so ago, and it's been great.

bought an Apex once. It broke after 95 days and the warranty was for 90 days. I tried to return it and Circuit City told me to go **** myself. No wonder they went out of business.

ya and I bought an insignia about 3 years ago, plasma and that thing broke a year ago. I know what it needs to fix it but my soldering skills suck, there is a skill to that and I don't have it, lol.

There's a little known company called Samsung. They make a damn good TV.

My parents have a 3 yr old Sylvania 32" LCD that still works great.

I don't think it's considered "off-brand" but last spring I needed to replace the kids' video game TV and got a Philips 40" LED TV at Costco for under $500. It was the biggest TV I could fit into the existing console. It is a very nice TV and works flawlessly.

I have 2 LG bigscreens, so no off-brands there.

However, the girls have a Dynex (Best Buy store brand) and for a dirt cheap TV, it's been rock solid.

Nowadays, Phillips IS an off-brand. :D

Yeah.....I won't be buying a Phillips. I bought one as my first "big screen" TV and it took a shit after 3 years.
